Kyle Katthews started this petition to Alberta Government and

I, a resident of Alberta, request that the Canadian Firearm Safety Course (CFSC) be included in the Alberta high school curriculum.

The safety course, as taught by an RCMP qualified instructor, can be taken by anyone 12 years or older and includes such topics as basic firearms safety practices, responsibilities of the firearms owner/user, and safe storage, transportation and handling of non-restricted firearms.

The safety course does not involve live firearms or ammunition and is purely educational. Completion of the course itself does not grant participants a firearm license. Students who are 18 years or older who successfully complete the course would have to undergo the normal RCMP application procedure to obtain a license, which includes background and reference checks.

The safety course could be taken off school grounds at existing course facilities and high school credits could be granted for completion of the course outside school hours, or as part of the options program, or even as a unit of grade 12 physical education. Credits for completion of the safety course should be granted in every school district.
